    Abstract: ON July 10, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) felicitated its former Director, the cosmic ray physicist and astronomer B.V. Sreekantan, to mark his 90th birthday, which was on June 30. Prof. Sreekantan has many achievements to his credit. He was part of the team that first detected atmospheric neutrinos in India, at Kolar Gold Fields. The planned launch by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) of Astrosat, a multi-wavelength X-ray astronomy spacecraft, in September, and the proposed India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) in Theni district of Tamil Nadu are milestones in the programmes that Sreekantan initiated at the TIFR. During his tenure at the TIFR, he put India on the world map of high-energy physics and built up a vibrant school of experimental high-energy cosmic rays.
